A recent study suggests the world’s stardowers can’t get married because it’s harder to make them, even if they’re pretty good looking.
According to the research from the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Business, the most common reasons for people to not marry are that they’ve had a child or are single.
In the case of starducks, that can’t be said of the majority of the species, but that’s not to say it’s not a problem.
The researchers say their study shows the average man can’t marry a woman of his own species because he has to be pretty handsome to attract a mate.
“There is a certain subset of men who are very attractive who just can’t attract a woman who’s the right shade of brown or blonde or a little bit more,” said Sarah K. Stokes, an associate professor of psychology at the Graduate School.
Stokes conducted her study with two co-authors, Jonathan B. Taggart and Mark A. Stott.
They looked at the data of 4,099 people who answered the question, “Do you have a spouse?”
They found that, while it’s true that the average starduck woman is about 20% more attractive than the typical man, that doesn’t mean they’re equally attractive.
For example, the researchers found that the typical starducker woman is 6% more beautiful than the standard male.
The average man is about 15% more handsome than the same woman.
“I think that’s just because you have to be able to attract the right people to have a child and be a stay-at-home parent and you have the desire to marry and have kids and all of those things, so that’s why the average male is more attractive,” said Stokes.
Stott said that, in the end, a mate has to have something attractive to match.
“They don’t have to have the most beautiful face, but they have to actually be attractive enough that you’re able to find someone who will be willing to give you the time of day to be the partner that you need to be,” she said.
If you want to marry, there’s a better way to do it, experts say, but it’s up to you.
